As a couple sometimes its nice to have a little getaway together. We were restricted with available time so wanted something close to the city of Sydney for a fun weekend. Well if we had sat down and made a list of ticks for must haves Forsyth filled the bill. Accomodation is spotless. Breakfast was delicious. Hosts were there when...

Ok - so I've written some 145 or so reviews so far and I try very hard to be fair. This was the strangest stay I've had anywhere - ever - in 40 years of travel. It troubles me that I'm the first to mention this of the reviews so far but sometimes things change and sometimes people just don't...

We stayed at Rozelle Room for 3 nights and Blackwattle room for 2 nights. We definitely preferred Rozelle Room. So many birds around the neighborhood, we heard loud bird singing as soon as we got up. Such a wonderful way to start the day! This house is in a very quiet residential neighborhood. But it's convenient for everything. We took...

We stayed here for a short two nights one day stay. Gary and Julie treated us so beautifully in spite of our awkward timing for arrival and departure. It is a great choice and Glebe is as charming as the accommodations. A much smarter choice than any hotel in Sydney. Thanks Gary and Julie for your warm hospitality.

When I originally booked into the Forsythe B&B, one of the factors that influenced me was to see how ANY accommodation could garner nothing but five-star ratings. Well, I've now stayed in both rooms they offer, and have seen why. I am adding yet another "top mark" to Gary & Julie for what they both offer and deliver. My quandary...

Simply the best! We loved this classy and extremely well-run bed and breakfast in the delightful suburb of Glebe (about a 30 minute walk into the downtown, but there are lots of buses too). Gary is a wonderful host, with great restaurant recommendations nearby, and fabulous breakfasts, outside in the courtyard in nice weather, and he also makes a great...

We stayed at the Forsyth B&B for 4 nights in late March/early April. We enjoyed our visit there immensely and have excellent memories of our stay.

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BOOKINGS ONLY AVAILABLE DIRECTLY WITH FORSYTH BNB. Forsyth is a delightful boutique bed and breakfast, a "piece of inner-city serenity", nestled between Glebe Point Road and Blackwattle Bay on Sydney Harbour, located 3 kms from the city and 20 minutes drive from the airport. Forsyth offers two spacious quiet guest rooms, both located upstairs, with no common walls. Each has a queen size bed, its own bathroom, reverse cycle air-conditioning, cable television, and free wi-fi. The Blackwattle Room has a separate television/ reading space and en-suite shower room, and "a circular porthole offsets the angular ceiling and gives a bird's eye view of the street". The Rozelle Room offers a full size bathroom (with double shower, bath and bidet) and a private balcony with views out towards Anzac Bridge and the city. Glebe Village has numerous restaurants which cater for every taste. Blackwattle Park with its beautiful foreshore promenade along Sydney Harbour is located a minute's walk from Forsyth, and Sydney Fish Market, a working fishing port, is close by. Forsyth is well serviced by public transport, and close to many local attractions including Chinatown, Star Casino, Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Powerhouse Museum. The Rocks and the Opera House are a short bus ride away or a walk for the hearty. In good weather, breakfast is served outside in the Japanese courtyard garden, alternatively in the dining room with its cathedral ceiling. Pick-up/drop-off at Sydney airport or cruise terminals is available on request. In order to avoid disappointment, please book early. We hope you enjoy your stay at Forsyth BnB. ... more   less
